The Aula Magna was packed with students for the talk entitled “Le strutture del racconto” which took place on January 22nd at the RUFA headquarters in via Taro, held by communication expert Giovanni Masi and curated by professor Fabrizio Verrocchi.
Who among us doesn’t have something interesting to tell? We all know stories to pass on to other people. Being able to tell a story means attracting the attention of those who listen to us or read. Communication is the basis of human relationships and constantly pervades and influences our daily life. Storytelling is not only an art, but also a need.
